His best known novels are 'War and Peace' and 'Anna Karenina'; he was also a prolific writer of philosophical essays, and his works often contain the themes of Christian anarchism and pacifism as per his beliefs. His writings on non-violent resistance inspired the likes of Martin Luther King Jr and Mahatma Gandhi.
